Composite Resin Fillings
Amalgam fillings and gold fillings are becoming obsolete as more patients choose to go with composite resin “tooth-colored” fillings. Composite resin fillings can be made to match the color of a patient’s natural tooth. Composite resin fillings have rendered the silver fillings that were once telling signs of cavities unnecessary.
Dental bonding can repair chips and cracks in teeth, and cover areas of discoloration. During the procedure a composite resin is applied to the tooth, layer-by-layer, and dried and hardened with a laser. The dentist will smooth and polish the bonded material once it has set.
Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a false tooth that is permanently secured to the jaw. A small titanium rod will be fixed into the jawbone, and once the jawbone has adhered to the structure, a false tooth will be attached to it.
Dental inlays and onlays are materials used to strengthen and repair decayed or otherwise damaged posterior teeth. They can be made of an attractive porcelain material and are ideal for restoring cracked or fractured teeth.
Porcelain veneers are thin porcelain shells that may be used to cover chipped, cracked or discolored teeth. Porcelain veneers are attached to the front of teeth with bonding cement and set with a blue light.
Procedures such as laser tooth whitening, ZOOM teeth whitening and at-home tooth whitening have made beautiful teeth a reality for many people. New techniques that accelerate teeth whitening and make the process more convenient are now available.
